About NCT Consultants

NCT Consultants is a global group of companies that contributes to America’s, Europe’s and Coalition Countries’ warfighter’s and first responder’s mission and capabilities to counter the threats of weapons of mass destruction and mitigate its effects (WMD/E). We support this mission by providing knowledge & networking, training and assist in building global partner capacities and partnerships. NCT Consultants organizes events, supports agencies in their mission, and contributes to training and readiness efforts.

NCT Consultants has a presence in three continents with companies based in Leiden, The Netherlands, Wilmington (DE), USA and in Singapore. These companies work jointly to make this world a safer and more secure place.

The flagship activities of NCT Consultants are the NCT annual events in Europe, USA, South America, Asia Pacific region and the Middle East. These events are organized completely inhouse by a team of specialized CBRN training and event consultants. NCT events feature an industry leading conference, a technology exhibition with industry partners and high-quality networking opportunities.

Most NCT events include the NCT PRO eXperience Training concept in which regional teams train on current threats and experience the latest CBRNe products and solutions provided by industry. Twice a year, the weeklong NCT PRO Challenge allows teams to train on new skills and complex scenarios. This training event includes the participation of specialized SWAT and Special Forces units, and specialized CBRN CQB (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear Close Quarters Battle) and live fire exercises making it one of the only CBRN CQB training events.
